best way to remove grease from rag top?

So, my dealer removed my convertible roof to replace a bad motor. I picked the car up at dusk and couldn't see anything wrong. Today I look at the roof in sun light and it's pretty hard not to notice that that some idiot there had managed to put a couple white grease smears on the black fabric

Is there a good/quick way to get that stuff off, or am I forced to take the car back?

Ouch sorry to hear about that. Tough call if you bring it back they could fix it and you might have no problems or they could make it worse. If you trust them I would ask them to do the work. If you're unsure I would do it yourself to be safe. If there is any chunks of grease I would carefully remove the biggest pieces being careful not to spread the grease. I would then spray a good fabric cleaner like the 303 Convertible Top Cleaner on the affected area. The 303 Cleaner is very good at breaking up most grease stains. Take a clean cloth and blot dry the area. Again be careful not spread the grease as much as possible. I'd recommend doing this sooner rather than later for best chance to fully remove.
